Tajči Čekada - What is performans and what  do performers actually do?

Performers: Krešo Kovačiček, Vladimir Wolfl, Andrea Kustić, Dejan Kljun, Zoran Krema, Davor Mandić, Igor Medved aka Medo Meduza, Igor Grdaković, Andrea Knežević, Jelena Germuth, Alen Petrić, Mitja Jelovčan, Antonio Kiselić, Emir Mulalić, Lovro Ivanković, Branko Manzin, Jura Marčec, Nikola Nedić, Boro PHC aka Boris Rakmarić, Luka Urlić, Dean Lalević.

A text taken from the website forum.hr  in which 21 persons discuss the meaning of performance serves as the basis for the performance by Tajči Čekada. The performance WHAT IS PERFORMANCE AND WHAT DO PERFORMERS ACTUALLY DO? includes 21 persons, each of which represents one of the forum discussion participants. Just like internet commentators hide their real names and use nicknames, the performers wear costumes hiding their true identities. The assumption is that a group of people discussing on the forum pages about performance denying it as an art form represents the opinion of a large portion of Croatia, including most passers-by whom they would encounter during their performance in Rijeka. The appropriated negative discourse and ridiculing performance thus becomes part of defining this medium as an equal art discipline, an attempt to approximate/connect/link the predominant opinion with what performance actually is.

Tajči Čekada is active in the field of fashion design, costume design, performance and photography. She began pursuing art in 2003 at Rijeka’s Palach club, where she launched a cycle of fashion-related events. In the next few years she participated, created and designed a series of stage, musical and fashion projects and performances opposite numerous artists and collaborators from the Palach club, later K.U.N.S. She made several conceptual and avant-garde fashion collections which she presented at conventional fashion shows and exhibitions. Tajči designs and makes stage costumes for concerts and music videos of different bands, as well as for films and theatre performances. She has exhibited her works at a number of group and solo fashion shows, exhibitions and performances in galleries and museums in Rijeka, Osijek, Zagreb, Pula, Split, Sarajevo, Stuttgart, Belgrade, Berlin, Paris, Kaunas etc.

Tajči Čekada – Što je to perforrmans i što ti performeri zapravo rade?

Tekst preuzet sa portala forum.hr  u kojem 21 osoba raspravlja o značenju performansa, služi kao scenarij za izvedbu Tajči Čekade. U ŠTO JE TO PERFORMANS I ŠTO TO PERFORMERI ZAPRAVO RADE? sudjeluje 21 osoba koja predstavlja jednog od forumaša. Kao što sudionici internetskih rasprava skrivaju osobno ime pod popularnim nick nameom, performeri nose kostime koji skrivaju prave identitete aktera. Pretpostavka je da grupa osoba koja na forumu raspravlja o performansu negirajući ga kao umjetničku formu, predstavlja mišljenje velikog dijela stanovništva Hrvatske, a time i većine prolaznika koji će se zateći za vrijeme riječke izvedbe. Preuzeti diskurs negacije i ismijavanja performansa na taj način postaje dijelom definiranja ovog medija kao ravnopravne umjetničke discipline, pokušaj približavanja – povezivanja –
spajanja mišljenja većine s onim što performans zapravo jest.

Tajči Čekada  djeluje na području modnog dizajna, kostimografije, performansa i fotografije.
S umjetničkim radom započinje 2003., u studiju u riječkom klubu Palach gdje pokreće ciklus modnih manifestacija. Tijekom sljedećih godina sudjeluje, kreira i osmišljava niz glazbeno – scenskih i modnih projekata, te performansa koje ostvaruje s nizom umjetnika i suradnika okupljenih oko kluba Palach, te kasnije K.U.N.S.-a . Autorica je nekoliko konceptualnih i avangardnih modnih kolekcija koje predstavlja ne konvencionalnim modnim performansima i izložbama. Dizajnira i izrađuje scenske kostime za koncertne nastupe i potrebe snimanja spotova raznih glazbenih skupina, te za potrebe filma i kazališnih  predstava.
Izlagala je na velikom broju skupnih i samostalnih revija, izložbi i performansa  u galerijama i muzejima Rijeke, Osijeka, Zagreba, Pule, Splita, Sarajeva, Stuttgarta, Beograda, Berlina, Pariza, Kaunasa…
